GMO Free NJ Hosts Meet and Greet with Eco-Fiction Authors
GMO Free NJ will host authors Chuck Wendig and Jon McGoran for a meet and greet and book signing from 6 to 8 p.m., November 20. The authors will read from their latest works and sign copies of their books involving genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Non-GMO refreshments will be served.
Wendig, a novelist, screenwriter and game designer, recently published Blightborn, the second book in The Heartland Trilogy for young adults, following up Under the Empyrean Sky. Kirkus Reviews describes it as “a chilling post-apocalyptic adventure set on an Earth devastated by poor agricultural practices.”
McGoran, the editor-in-chief of Grid, a magazine covering issues of sustainability, is author of the ecological thriller Drift and has just released its sequel Deadout. Booklist calls it “another intriguing eco-thriller that takes the GMO food angle first explored in Drift to a whole new level.”
